I just picked the first flush of my casing and there is coco coir and vermiculite all over the harvest. Is cleaning necessary? if so, how do I go about cleaning the coir/verm off the shrooms?

An old toothbrush works great for removing casing material off the base of your shrooms. I'd suggest cleaning them, afterall you don't really want to be ingesting vermiculite down the road.

The casing material ended up all over the shrooms after the collection container spilled. will a cold water bath work?

i can't say if it will hurt them or not, but it'll sure slow down your drying

I don't really mind another day in the drying chamber if it will mean me not having to eat coco coir and vermiculite

i think if you dry them, most of the verm and stuff will fall off.
